Bruins pick up Mark Rechhi from Tampa Bay for D Matt Lashoff and Fwd Martin Karsmus, plus the B's get Tampa's 2010 2nd round draft pick. Guys the B's gave up were both mostly Providence minor league guys, altho' they've had cups of coffee w/the big club.

Also the B's pick up D Steve Montador from the Ducks for winger Petri Nokaleinin...Montador is a big guy, strong stay at hiome type of D, can rattle some bodies, not a big goals scorer, veteran D who used to play w/Ference, Kobasew and Yelle in Calgary.

No blockbusters here, but the B's didn't give up much either. Rechhi is 41, but could help out their power play and has a Cup (from 'Canes in '06) and is a smart veteran forward. Could provide a big goal (we hope way more than one) in the playoffs.

obviously they are taking the now approach vs. the "maybe next year" which i have to say that i respect that aggressiveness. Lashoff is a great young player that any team from this point moving forward would benefit much more from than Recchi based on age if nothing else...but the latters experience could spark something to help the lack of offense that the Bruins have seem to become acquainted with the past few weeks....i think this team realizes that the time is now and i like this move for that reason if nothing else.
